Proud supporters of The Pyjama Foundation’s “The Long Road” Charity Event
The Pyjama Foundation is a children’s charity that is breaking the cycle of disadvantage experienced by Australian children in foster care. The Pyjama Foundation recruits, screens, trains and supports Pyjama Angels – volunteer members of the community who work with the children in care and support their foster families. With over 39,000 children in care in Australia, it is a worthwhile cause that has the support of ABKJ Lawyers.
The Long Road is a non-competitive charity walking event that will be held in 13 locations around the country (in Brisbane, Sydney, Frankston, Cairns, Townsville, Mackay, Gladstone, Bundaberg, Sunshine Coast, Toowoomba, Ipswich, Logan and the Gold Coast) on Sunday 23 March 2014.
After supporting the Long Road Event in its inaugural year in 2013, ABKJ Lawyers is again proud to be an event partner of the Gold Coast event, to be held through the Federation Walk Coastal Reserve, on the Southport Spit.
If you are interested in supporting or participating in the event, please contact our office for more information, or visit The Pyjama Foundation website:
